HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Bottle 500ml from Waitrose, Christchurch. I had this along with a Guinness Foreign Extra, and I must say that there is no comparison. The Oyster Stout pours a dark brown, almost black, with not much of a head on it. Certainly some caramel and dark fruits in the aroma. Again, dark fruits and caramel coming through in the taste. Quite a thin mouthfeel. All-in-all, a fairly average brew.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2008
A light bodied stout with a nice roasty malty taste. I really like the smoothness in this, dangerously drinkable.

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle 50 cl. Just black, with a small head and a typical stout’s smell. The taste is also not special at all, this must be the pale lager among stouts. There’s just nothing special or thrilling about this. This is so standard, I don’t think I’ll ever order this again.

Ibrew2or3 (7423) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours deep dark brown with thin tan head. The aroma is full of cola soda, vanilla, some mild roastiness and hints of dark fruity esters. The taste starts mildly dark and fruity with some notes of roasted malts. It gets roastier as the finish approaches. Nice balance achieved between the various flavor notes.

Bottled. Almost black colored. Chocolate, malt and a pinch of salt in the aroma. Roasted malt, salt, licorice and chocolate in the flavor. Almost medium bodied. Very drinkable.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle at bar Becolth, Boxtel (NL). A black colored beer, with a thick beige head. An aroma of dark roasted malts, medium sweet. The taste is a little thin, a little malty and coffee. It has a dry taste, with a gentle aftertaste. Not bad.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Pours very dark brown with a small light tan head. Light aroma of roasted malt and a hint of dark fruit. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Decent.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2008
The aroma holds a lot of sweet fruity esters and a not so appealing stale note. No roasted malt notes at all. Basically just a lot of sweet dark fruit aromas. The carbonation levels is very low. Mild chocolate and fruit flavors. Very still palate.
